Shoujou, but now I'm more sure that it used to be this kushiage place Nagomi, which was good and deserved to stay in business. But hell, something else could have come and gone while I wasn't looking. It's been years since I had nights out in Monnaka, even though I've been back every year to say a little prayer at the shrine. I've been making a big deal of this recently, I know. Bear with me.
smorking that it really puts me off now, even more than usual, and I don't ever want Catfish and Mrs. Peel to think I smell funny because I was around it. If they think I smell funny because of saki, so much the better.
Anyhoo, funny vibe, kinda distracted staff, and I suppose they didn't know what to make of us, which is very fair. Two white guys in t-shirts (mine, I believe, proclaimed my allegiance to a certain 'Nomura', which is even more confusing) acting like there's nothing more natural than them kicking back at the bar ordering some saki and snaxxx.
Speaking of which, I still have my old Daruma with the eyes filled in. Next time we go to Japan, maybe the kids will be big enough for a road trip and we can go to Daruma-ji and get it ceremonially burned? It's gotta be bad luck to have it after all these years.
Ishii, and the smoking is amazing there. This was not, but it reminded us of the greatness that exists elsewhere.
Need to get some more steps. Health.
Bankruptcy is the likely route,' for him if not for the guys here.
Although it's only 2 months for them as of this visit, so there's still time.
